Age Group : 3-8 years
Using a structured visual approach to learning, where picture cards assume a powerful role, this resource provides specialists and parents with the engaging, structured and ready-to-use activities they need to enrich their children’s semantic knowledge of a wide variety of everyday lexical items and strengthen their ability to make semantic associations.
Drawing on the principle that visual supports can act as a truly motivating learning tool, the eBook features 559 full-colour illustrated worksheets, which are based on a genuinely step-by-step approach that enables learners to consolidate new information at a pace that suits their needs.
This eBook will be particularly useful for parents, speech pathologists and specialist teachers working with children aged 3 to 8 years, who are experiencing semantic development difficulties, particularly within the spectrum of Pervasive Developmental Disorders. The use of the materials can also be extended to address the particular needs of children and adults with aphasia disorders.
Key learning goals:
- Identifying, recognising and naming lexical items that belong to fundamental semantic categories (animals, fruit, vegetables, sweets, food, clothing).
- Vocabulary enrichment.
- Building learners’ awareness of the semantic features of a large number of everyday vocabulary items.
- Classifying concepts / lexical items.
- Making semantic associations between concepts / lexical items.
- Drawing generalisations about concepts / lexical items.
If you are looking for a set of structured and easy-to-use materials to enhance your children’s semantic skills and help them gain a strong grasp of vocabulary, the eBooks of the SEMANTIC TOOLKIT series will be a valuable addition to your library.
